Rear Lamp Indicator

Recommended Posts

My rear lamp indicator (orange light the dash) stays on all the time. The owners' manual states that it will come on when the brakes are applied if a brake light is out, or it will come on when the headlights are turned on if a tail light is out. None of these lights are out. I do have one of the license plate lights out. The light came on after going through a car wash and stays one every time the ignition is on. Do I have a short circuit, or what is the cause? Thanks for your help.

Do you have the brake light that is located in the center of the back seat area of the car? I had the same problem a few months ago and couldn't figure out what the problem was until a friend noticed that the center brake light was out.

Thanks for the responses. The problem is solved. I had, in addition to the license plate light, one of the center mounted brake lights out. Both lights were replaced and the rear lamp warning light is now out. I just though it strange because I thought the warning light would only come on when I applied the brakes, instead of staying on all the time. By the way, my car is a 1996 ES300.
